  • About the Edition

    Land-use changes involve important economic and environmental effects with implications for international trade, global climate change, wildlife, and other policy issues. We use an econometric model to identify factors driving land-use change in the United States between 1982 and 1997. We quantify the effects of net returns to alternative land uses on private landowners" decisions to allocate land among six major uses, drawing on detailed micro-data on land use and land quality that are comprehensive of the contiguous U.S. This analysis provides the first evidence of the relative historical importance of markets and Federal farm policies affecting land-use changes nationally.

    Disease emergence and land use change. Human activity has altered ecosystems on a global scale [21,22].Changes include deforestation, expansion of agriculture, pollution, eutrophication, depletion of marine fisheries and increased nitrogen fixation [21,22].Anthropogenic influence on landscapes has increased most rapidly in the last century with global population growth [].Cited by: Rapid increases in urbanization, along with market forces and public policy instruments, have altered land use patterns, with consequences for the sustainability of natural resources in the southern United States. This project examines three critical, but understudied aspects associated with land use change--the role of public policy, especially property tax policy, land use change within the.

An understanding of the main drivers of land-use change is critical for policy recommendations that aim to meet the challenge of food and environmental security over the coming decades. Here we show that agricultural policy exerts substantial influence on cropland area in the United States through administration of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).Cited by: 6. 31 The impacts of changes in land use and land cover cut across all regions and sectors of the National 32 Climate Assessment. Chapters addressing each region discuss land use and land cover topics of 33 particular concern to specific regions. Similarly, chapters .

We use an econometric model to identify factors driving land-use change in the United States between and Because of the vertical and horizontal heterogeneity of landscapes, researchers from many disciplines use land survey data. Zoologically oriented landscape ecologists study the effects of horizontal heterogeneity on animal populations (Merriam, ; Forman, ).

Similarly, the data can be used to. Our first priority is to develop a science plan for research on land use change. Changes in land use are among the important forces driving global climate change.

Climate change can also be expected to have an important impact on land use change. But it is the context within which land use change is occurring that gives it special importance.

Land Use Change. Land-use change is defined as greenhouse gas emissions from human activities which either change the way land is used (e.g., clearing of forests for agricultural use) or has an effect on the amount of biomass in existing biomass stocks (e.g., forests, village trees, woody savannas, etc.

Introduction. In addition to emissions of heat-trapping greenhouse gases from energy, industrial, agricultural, and other activities, humans also affect climate through changes in land use (activities taking place on land, like growing food, cutting trees, or building cities) and land cover (the physical characteristics of the land surface, including grain crops, trees, or concrete).

The ERS Major Land Uses (MLU) series is the longest running, most comprehensive accounting of all major uses of public and private land in the United States. The U.S. land area totals just under billion acres. Choices about land-use and land-cover patterns have affected and will continue to affect how vulnerable or resilient human communities and ecosystems are to the effects of climate change.

Land-use and land-cover changes affect local, regional, and global climate processes. “What Drives Land-Use Changes in the United States.

A National Analysis of Landowner Decisions,” with Andrew Plantinga and Robert Stavins. Land. Local governments in the United States typically have a variety of laws that limit what kinds of building can be built in different places, including limits on how much total built floor area any given lot is allowed to contain.1 Our understanding is that one effect of these policies is to prevent the construction of dense housing.2 This drives.

The basic economic and demographic factors shaping land-use changes in the United States are powerful, and even fairly dramatic policy changes, showed only moderate deviations from the .The Major Land Uses (MLU) series is the longest running, most comprehensive accounting of all major uses of public and private land in the United States.

The MLU series contains acreage estimates of major uses for the U.S., regions, and States, beginning in and published about every 5 years since (through ).

The annual cropland summary table has been consistently maintained since The U.S. Geological Survey Land Cover Trends Project is releasing a – time-series land-use/land-cover dataset for the conterminous United States.

The dataset contains 5 dates of land-use/land-cover data for 2, sample blocks randomly selected within 84 ecological regions.
